Harmonized standards:


IEC 61439-5:2010 gives specific requirements for public electricity network distribution assemblies (PENDAs), which are stationary assemblies verified by verification tests, as defined in this standard. These ASSEMBLIES are used for the distribution of electrical energy in three-phase systems (see Figure 101 for a typical distribution network). Open type ASSEMBLIES are not covered by this standard. This first edition of IEC 61439-5 cancels and replaces the second edition of IEC 60439-5 (2006), and constitutes a technical revision. This edition of IEC 61439-5 includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the latest edition of IEC 60439-5: – alignment on IEC 61439-1 regarding the structure and technical content, as applicable; – introduction of new verifications, accordingly; – harmonisation of the requirements of substation cable distribution boards and cable distribution cabinets, thereby eliminating the need to identify and define two catagories of assembly; – simpler standard as a result of a reduction in the number of assembly types defined and the acronyms used to identify the different assemblies.
